Report: Kenedy to undergo Newcastle United medical on Tuesday



According to reports from Sky Sports, Chelsea winger Kenedy will undergo a medical with Newcastle United on Tuesday ahead of a season-long loan move to St James’ Park

The 22-year-old joined the Magpies last season on loan in the January transfer window, and made a strong impact for the side.

He scored two goals in 13 appearances for the Tyneside club and played a major role as he helped them to Premier League survival.

Since then, Newcastle have been trying to sign him, and it seems Rafael Benitez will get his wish, as the Magpies are close to signing him on loan again.

The report claims that the Brazilian will now travel to Newcastle on Monday evening ahead of the move.

Kenedy joined Chelsea three years ago from Brazilian side Fluminense, but has played just 27 times for the club. He will become Newcastle’s third signing of the summer, after the arrivals of Martin Dubvraka (on a permanent deal) and Ki Sung-Yeung.

Newcastle are also keen on signing Andros Townsend with Crystal Palace willing to sell him for around £17 million. The report claims that Kenedy’s move is independent of any deal for Townsend.
